Alberta Cross

Alberta Cross Pare Down Their Sound With The Songs of Petter Ericson Stakee

Alberta Cross are a roots rock band that sound like they are influenced by The Band and Neil Young. Assumption being that they are American. In fact they formed in the UK and the leader of the band Petter Ericson Stakee is originally from Uppsala, Sweden. Things changed even more when bassist and co-songwriter Terry Wolfers left the group leaving it as a Stakee solo project. Good news is that this new self-titled album has some pretty good songs that we will hear in a set coming up.
